International Employment Issues

In today’s business environment, workplace issues are increasingly crossing international borders—whether involving U.S. corporations doing business overseas or multinational companies with interests in the United States.

International Employment Issues

Overview

We understand that to best serve our clients we too need to provide legal advice in a global context. Through our international legal team and our relationships with top labor and employment law practices throughout the world, we offer a consistent, lower cost, flexible approach to your global labor and employment law matters.

As an AmLaw 100 law firm— and one of the fastest growing law firms in the United States—Jackson Lewis P.C. has a well-established reputation for counseling and defending multinational corporations and emerging businesses on every type of matter relating to workplace law. Our international group includes a practice leader who served in-house for a major global employer managing workplace issues in more than 70 countries. We understand what adds value for our clients, because we have stood in their shoes. Jackson Lewis is also a founding member of L&E Global, a worldwide alliance of premier employment law firms and practices.

For U.S. and Global Corporations Operating Internationally

Our International Employment Issues Practice Group (working with Jackson Lewis attorneys in other practice groups and our international affiliate firms) devises solutions for our clients in the full range of global matters, including:

  • Global restructurings, plant closings and collective redundancies;
  • Drafting and global implementation of employee codes of conduct, policies and work rules;
  • Global labor relations and works council (including European Works Council) matters;
  • Implementation of data protection policies and practices;
  • Expatriate and other global mobility issues, including corporate compliance immigration requirements;
  • Obtaining employment-based temporary work visas and permanent resident status;
  • Advising on cross-border or international executive separations;
  • Cross-border litigation and arbitration;
  • Global compensation and benefit matters;
  • Advising on labor/employment issues associated with global M&A or other transactions, such as transfer of undertaking; and
  • Conducting or managing internal compliance investigations.

For Multinational Companies with U.S. Interests

Multinational entities operating in the United States face a challenging array of laws and regulations governing the rights and responsibilities of employers and workers. Our attorneys are well-positioned to work with clients on these issues, among others:

  • Ensuring U.S. operations comply with federal, state and local employment laws;
  • Securing the visas and employment authorizations needed to transfer foreign nationals to the U.S.;
  • Employing U.S. citizens abroad; and
  • Due diligence on the employment implications of mergers, acquisitions, closings and other business transactions.

Jackson Lewis is a founding member of L&E Global, an international alliance of independent law firms, each of which is a separate legal entity. L&E Global itself does not practice law or otherwise provide legal services to clients. Legal services are provided independently by each of the separate member firms of the L&E Global alliance. Each member firm of L&E Global is responsible for its own legal advice and services, and no member firm or partner of such firm may bind or act as agent for Jackson Lewis.
